2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize Shortlist

Presenting the four finalists for the 2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition.

 - February 25, 2016

We’re pleased to announce the four finalists for the 2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition whose goal is to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition. This year, Aperture’s editorial and limited-edition print staff reviewed more than five hundred portfolios. Our challenge is to select one winner and three honorable mentions from this overwhelming response. Out of the following exceptional finalists, one will be selected as the winner of the 2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize, receiving a cash prize and exhibition at Aperture Gallery in New York:

Bill Durgin

Eli Durst

Sean Thomas Foulkes

RaMell Ross

The winner of the 2016 Aperture Portfolio Prize will be announced in late March. The finalists’ portfolios and statements will be available here on aperture.org. In the meantime, check out last year’s winner, Drew Nikonowicz, and the three runners up.
